World Cup: Street celebrations after Senegal advance

Street celebrations erupted in Senegalese capital, Dakar, after the men’s football national team advanced into the World Cup’s knockout stages for only the second time in the country’s history.

Senegal defeated Ecuador 2-1 on Tuesday night to finish as runners-up in Group A behind the Dutch.

The win saw Aliou Cissé’s side set up a last-16 meeting with Group B winners England on Sunday (19:00 GMT).

Crowds poured to the streets of Dakar after the final whistle – many waving the country’s flag while others chanted praise for the players.

One group of supporters went to the presidential palace where they were met by President Macky Sall.
